Weekly Challenge for 3-25-13

20130325-180808.jpg

Ah Monday…Let’s turn the worst day of the week into the best day with a bit of a challenge! Are you ready?

Spins

How many can you do in a row? This seems like an easy challenge, but it won’t be! For all levels, see how many you can do in a row. The hard part will be not to go spinning off into oblivion, crash into the mirror, or kill the cat (or yourself!)

How? Keep your chest up, and spot, spot, spot. If you have not learned to spot by now, you really need to do it. Spinning without spotting is possible, even fun and beautiful, but not very good afterwards. Spotting is what keeps you from getting too dizzy. Here’s a secret: you never stop getting dizzy after a huge number of spins, you just handle it better. Ask your teacher about the correct way to spot turn before attempting this challenge.

So pick a turn that you can do pretty well, put on a good song (advanced dancers should try a fast one) and spin, spin, spin! Just remember to keep your form and posture up while you turn, and if you start to feel too dizzy, stop immediately and give yourself a break.

Tell me how many you can do! Comment below and let’s see!

Happy dancing!

    I love that you post these weekly challenges. I am a beginner/intermediate belly dancing student (Houston), and I think they are very helpful. Right now, I can do zero turns in a row, but I will try to work on it this week.
